I have two great ~ I mean GREAT ~ mothers. My real mother (Hi Mom!) and the mother I inherited when I married the Giant Scandinavian (who is currently my hero because he has somehow figured out how to teach CHOIR from home). And both of my mothers have brightened up my life, this past week, with their amazing recipes. I recently purchased a recipe-organizing … Continue reading Two delicious summer salads.

Not go out and eat something expensive and decadent. The verdict: this was SO delicious. Comfort food at its finest. Sunday food from circa 1980. Tuna Cakes … Continue reading 3-ingredient Tuna Cakes & “NO-tato” Potato Salad.
I confess. I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the trendy food-lovers’ salad of today ~ the Buddha Bowl. I could eat one every single day. And it would be really smart for me to do so. It’s full of all the things that really make me feel amazing: fresh, vibrantly-colored vegetables, mostly raw, nuts, seeds, fruits, maybe a little protein or grain added, and a homemade … Continue reading Buddha Bowl Addict.
